The Hanoi City People's Court on September 27 sentenced Indonesian citizen Triwenning Puji Astuli to four months imprisonment for drug trafficking.
On September 12, police officers in the Hoan Kiem District in co-ordination with relevant authorities caught 27-year old Astuli red-handed at the Royal Palace hotel attempting to conceal 4.929 kg of heroin in six comic books.
The police investigation found that Astuli was employed by an African citizen named Staenly to transport the comic books containing the drugs from Malaysia to Hanoi for delivery to a third party.
Astuli admitted to previously having been employed by Staenly to transport drugs to Malaysia, China and Hong Kong (China). Each successful transaction earned her US$250.
